Boat Rocker Media has made an investment in talent management and production company Untitled Entertainment.
The partnership will enable Untitled, in collaboration with Boat Rocker, to expand all aspects of its business, including in the areas of TV, film and digital production. Untitled will continue to operate under its current senior leadership team.
Untitled represents a wide variety of talent, including Gillian Anderson, Connie Britton, Penelope Cruz, Alan Cumming, Laura Dern, Matt Dillon, Minnie Driver, Jane Fonda, Naomie Harris, Jessica Lange, Thandie Newton, Chris Rock and Naomi Watts. Untitled recently expanded its lines of business with the launch of the brand-management joint venture BrandTitled.
“Untitled Entertainment sits amongst a very small group of world-class talent management companies. With an unrivalled roster of clients, a terrific team of managers and a thoughtful ‘talent-first’ approach, Untitled has emerged into a highly respected management powerhouse,” said Boat Rocker Co-Founders and Co-Executive Chairmen Ivan Schneeberg and David Fortier. “We’re incredibly excited to be working with the Untitled team to expand their business and to collaborate with them and their clients on future projects.”
John Young, CEO of Boat Rocker, said: “It was immediately clear that Boat Rocker and Untitled would be a great complement to each other. We’re thrilled to be working together to enhance Untitled’s current lines of business, especially its production capabilities, while looking for new business opportunities in this ever-changing media landscape.”
Untitled Co-Founders Jason Weinberg and Stephanie Simon: “We have worked with incredible colleagues and clients over the past 20 years and have always strived to be very selective about our partnerships. Boat Rocker has evolved from its roots as a successful producer into a serious global studio. We’re thrilled to be partnering at this point in Untitled’s growth curve as a way of increasing opportunities for our clients.”
